Dave Root – Kelways

“Rose Tinted PR, led by the supercharged Rosie Harkness has handled our PR for the Chelsea Flower Show for 5 years now. As horticulturists we are bad at promoting ourselves, yet Rosie takes all of our news and promotional activities and turns them into something interesting and newsworthy. She seems to know “everybody” and since working with her we have had more TV, radio, newspaper and press interest than we have ever had in the past. Its a great relationship and we really enjoy and benefit from Rosie’s assistance in promoting our business”

She reminds us constantly of the need to get information out to the media and to be organised, she is very good communicator and delivers great results to our target audience.”

Ulf Nordfjell – Award Winning Swedish Landscape Architect

“Rosie is a star, the best,  but also the only PR I know that can take care of a designer’s sometimes fragile ego whilst proactively pushing him forward and striving to achieve high level coverage across all target media.  She is very unique, thoroughly professional, great fun In short, I love working with her and trust her judgement implicitly.”

Mark Straver – Hortus Loci, wholesale plant nursery to top landscape architects and Garden Designers

“I have known Rosie for several years and when it came to hiring a PR for my business there was no competition!  She knows the sector better than anyone else and has the respect of both growers like myself but also the garden designers with whom we work seem to like her approach.  Most importantly the media know and respect her as a consummate but fun professional.  Rosie loves what she does, is a natural communicator and makes getting coverage and increasing brand awareness a positive experience for her client.”

Robin Wallis – Whitewater Plant Centre

“Rosie came highly recommended by some of her existing clients and those are the recommendations that I trust above all others.  Personable, organised and goal focused, she displayed an excellent understanding of our industry and knew just how to pitch both our retail and trade nurseries to each relevant sector of the press. We have been trading less than 2 years but media coverage in both trade and consumer sectors has been extraordinary thanks to Rosie’s excellent contacts and her approach.”
